How to Get a “Free Space”
I needed the extra space to fill, so there isn’t a free space.

Fun Space Covers
The best part would be that you’d have them for other lessons within your unit.
- Get cross-curicular with this How to Draw Incredible Sharks and Other Ocean Giants book
- Head to your local aquarium or check out these aquarium webcams. You could have them do a questions page, a sketch-your-favorite page, a page with what they observed that they didn’t know before, etc. to create their very own aquarium notebook.
- Have littles hanging around during the bigger kids’ lessons? This fun mat with toy animals and plants with will keep them entertained as they listen in to their siblings’ unit. What a great post-unit playroom toy, too!
- Our boys often ask for Coyote Peterson videos on YouTube. They’re super adventurous and he even did some free, interactive classes we took that they enjoyed!
- Play a fun game of charades for kids using this page of sea creatures to pick from
- Use your shells and sea animals used as bingo covers to add, subtract, practice greater than/less than, etc.
- Print this map of the world’s oceans and color it together, or for older kids, research an ocean they’d like to know more about.
- Get books from the library about marine life that answer questions your child/children have about the ocean.
